Due to recent coverage of the city by a TV show that shares its name, Nashville has been receiving never before seen attention with record breaking tourism. The city its self intends to take this blessing and use it to bring the city to an even better place.

The city of Nashville — Lipscomb University’s hometown — is gaining notoriety across the country and around the world.

More than 550 Nashville area business leaders gathered Dec. 7 in Allen Arena to hear Nashville Mayor Karl Dean; Butch Spyridon, president of Nashville’s Convention and Visitor’s Bureau; and Loucas George, producer of the new ABC hit television program, “Nashville,” discuss the growing interest in Nashville.

“People are taking notice of Nashville,” said Dean. “We have a very diverse and strong economy. Our unemployment rate is less than the state and national average. There is a lot of energy in this city.”
